I thought "No Subject" was a really good one,
And have similar symptoms to yours when I start flaring. And I am glad you got a puppy, it will all be worth it once he's trained. I hope you are using a crate, it really does help. My two little dogs are the best therapy dogs ever. I am very, very, sun and fluorescent light sensitive, so maybe even brief, potty time sun is making you feel worse? I know what you mean about
flu like sick, and the exhaustion that even 14 hours of bedrest doesn't help. I have often used the term constant flu to describe how I feel to my drs. I went through a complete cardiac workup 6 yrs. ago, too, and guess what.... NORMAL. Surprise!!!!!! My rheumy is a sweetie, and several times mentioned, sorta off the cuff, that's what many of my lupus patients say. So there is comfort in shared misery I think.
Hug a puppy for me,
God knows, even if I don't....
